|Four Early Works by Anthony Gnazzo|
Four early compositions by Anthony Gnazzo. Unlike the later tape pieces for which Gnazzo is perhaps best known, these four chamber and electro-acoustic works show off the more traditional, maybe even academic, side of his many musical accomplishments. Featured works include “Stochata” for two violins, flute, and clarinet, “Music for Two Pianos and Electronic Sounds,” “Music for Piano I,” and “Music for Brass with Electronic Sounds.” The first two works were recorded in 1964 at tw...

|Morning Concert: Collected Audiophonies|
A program of avant-garde sound poetry and music by Charles Amirkhanian and Anthony Gnazzo, featuring a collection of their recent and past compositions. Interspersed among the formal pieces are bits of sound collage and Gnazzo's commentary on his career retrospective slide show. Also this morning Tony Gnazzo, who had recently announced his retirement from composing avant-garde music, and who has not been seen at a concert of new music for over fourteen months, presents his seminar on retirement ...

|Radio Event No. 19: An Orchestra Is Born|
One in a series of groundbreaking, audience participatory Radio Events, produced by KPFA in Berkeley California. For this program, Anthony Gnazzo, solicited from KPFA listeners, brief recordings of various sounds of their own choosing. This collection was then subjected to chance operations by Gnazzo, and lo and behold, “An Orchestra Is Born”. Somewhat reminiscent of John Cage’s “33 1/3”, the resulting auditory montage is a wonderfully diverse mix of spoken word, music, and just down r...

|Radio Event No. 5: X-Change|
Composed in 1969 specifically for broadcast on KPFA’s groundbreaking, audience participation, Radio Event series, Anthony Gnazzo has created yet another hilarious work of sound poetry or aural montage. Mixing snippets of advertisements, announcements, and music from the mainstream media with excerpts of phone interviews that Gnazzo conducted with KPFA listeners about their impressions of radio programming and commercials, this work captures the combination of youthful innocence and crass capit...

|Ode to Gravity: Text-sound poetry by Charles Amirkhanian, Anthony Gnazzo, and Clark Coolidge|
A program of text-sound and poetry works by Anthony Gnazzo, Clark Coolidge, and Charles Amirkhanian. Gnazzo is interviewed by Charles about his career and the techniques he uses to create his compositions. Gnazzo, a pioneer in the field of electronic music who now lives in relative obscurity in Oakland, composes entirely on tape, and yet does not even have a tape or record player in his house. His rigorous training in music at Brandeis University under the tutelage of Arthur Berger, amply prepar...

|r i g i d f o x h o l e - Charles Amirkhanian, Richard Friedman & Anthony Gnazzo|
This incurably bizarre program, somewhat reminiscent of John Cage's Indeterminacy, begins with "I had a hankering to shoot pins at Bartok." It features a mix of pre-recorded electronic and radio drama sound sources mixed with tape delay under readings of experimental texts by Charles Amirkhanian read by Carol Law, Anthony J. Gnazzo and Amirkhanian himself. Performed live in the KPFA studios, the writing is influenced by William Burroughs, Clark Coolidge, and Fluxus happenings artists Dick Higgin...

|The Words and Music of Anthony Gnazzo|
Composer Anthony Gnazzo introduces a number of his compositions, two of them finished especially for this program. Charles Amirkhanian plays his tape composition “Audience”, based on ambient sound recordings made in the garage and stairwell of the Oakland Museum, with his kitchen milk steamer at home, and at Marineworld/Africa USA. And the two just generally have fun in the KPFA studios. This is another funny and fantastic program by the dynamic duo of text-sound composition...
